    The Great Resignation: How It Impacts You (TPS380)

    The Great Resignation: How It Impacts You (TPS380)

    Today’s episode is going to be slightly different than what you might be used to from us.



    We’re always looking for ways to make the podcast better, more fun, and insightful.



    Every podcast episode is still actionable but the format might be different every now and then like today’s episode.



    We are going to talk about something that has been in the news a LOT this year: what has been called The Great Resignation.



    Records keep being broken for people INTENTIONALLY leaving their jobs, often without another job lined up yet.



    This is happening in all sectors of the economy; especially in the US, but in many other countries as well.



    Stat from The Atlantic: 1 in 14 employees in the “accommodations and food services” sector left a job in a single month.



    It's not just limited to that though!



    Companies are offering signing & referral bonuses more than ever before (just ask Brooks' wife!)



    A PwC survey found that 65% of US employees are looking for a new job.



    One of the things we like to say at AE is: happy people are productive people!



    Whether you’re an employee, manager, or boss - we’ll go over how the Great Resignation impacts you and what you can do about it moving forward to have a happy and productive life.

    Staying Focused: How We Use Notifications and Reminders (TPS376)

    Staying Focused: How We Use Notifications and Reminders (TPS376)

    A comment in a recent Podcast recording livestream made us realize that there’s this misconception that we are these Notification-less monks, who have all of our devices on Do Not Disturb and never get notified about anything.



    This is not quite true - we actually embrace notifications and reminders! The only difference is that they need to do something for us - they need to remind us to do something important, at the right time and in the right place and context.



    So we are going to share how we use reminders, what we get reminded about, what we use to be reminded, and some best practices.



    If you find yourself missing tasks, appointments, or not taking action on things you should - we’ll help you get reminded the right way



    Maybe you have the opposite problem - you have too many reminders, notifications, and other beeps and popups going on that you get distracted and the important ones get lost in the noise



    You just want to hear about how we do things to maybe get some ideas - fair enough.

    There are some things you can do to make your Zoom or Teams experience better, and some best practices to make the most effective use of your time. Anything we can do to make OUR experience better, and the experience of the people we are in meetings with better, will pay off.



    In this episode, we are going to share 3 Zoom and Teams best practices to have the most of your Time, Energy, and Attention.
